The Q Brothers incite a party atmosphere, even at a tragedy. In the sixth floor lobby of Chicago Shakespeare Theater, audience members stream out of Othello: The Remix and belly up to the bar for a cocktail or three, excitingly imbibing for the hour or so before the theater shuts down. It’s not a cast party or formal gathering of any kind but rather an impromptu event that magically seems to reoccur every night. No one wants to go home. They’re having too much fun. And the Q Brothers and their castmates—adapters, actors, rappers, party animals—are in the middle of it all.
